The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

God makes all things possible

Awhile back, Mom and I were outside waiting for Dad. I was bored so I sat down in a patch of clovers. I looked down and thought, "hey, I may as well look for a four leaf clover." So, Mom sat on the stairs while I looked through the clovers. I told her about how I had heard that you could only find one 4 leaf clover in every hundred. I fully did not expect to find any because this was a small patch. haha, but God had a different plan! Within a few minutes I found 3!!!! So much for my "information." God loves to prove the impossible! His Name be glorified!

Seasons of Renewal

Pastor Pierpont preached this wonderful sermon on how we need to have seasons of renewal. It's not a once in a life time thing, but rather minute by minute. I just wanted to share this concept of constantly trying ourselves and asking God for a personal revival. These are just my notes, but maybe you can learn and apply from them.

1. Consecration/Dedication - One decision.This one is when you first get saved.
I am yours: The Lord's, The Lord's, The Lord's.
-Bethel experience Jacob/Esau {Future (He chose us!), Frighten (God is working), Guilty}
Jacob was not deserving -Genesis 28:12

2. Practice Seasonal Renewals of consecration
Deuteronomy 16:16-17 Pilgrim, Psalms, tabernacles = tents

3. Institute Weekly Reminders of Eternal things.
-Disciple people and love on people.

4. Cultivate Daily Expression of affection for God.
-Isaiah 50:4 Habits of the Heart Acts 2:17
-Satan's custom-made daily lies kill.
-Jesus' daily Word gives us abundances

5. Enjoy moment-by-moment with Jesus
-Continuous Fellowship... this is the goal. Abiding in Christ.
Lord, I know you love me, I want to love You back, help me.

Confederate Ball 2011

Saturday, January 29, 2011 we attended a confederate ball. This is the entire group of people we invited. The ball turned out splendidly!
Elizabeth, Rebecca, Kim, Mrs. Schilling, Taylor and Kristen. It was a so nice to have my piano teacher, Kristen and her husband Joel come.
Kim, Angela, Sarah, Aunt Paula, Mrs. Krause, and Christina.
Rebecca, Jeremiah, Daniel, Seth, Elizabeth, and Kate, in front of the Confederate flag.
My friend Rebecca stayed with us for the weekend. It was wonderful to have her over. She lives in Virginia so it was a long drive. Between Friday and Saturday we made matching purses to go with our dresses. Fun times!
Sarah and I at her house about to ride in our carriage to the ball. :D We both love to sew and make new things. Sarah inspires me to hone my handwork skills as well as my love for God.
This is Daniel's sister Angela. It was her first time to come to the ball and we had a blast!
Kim, Rebecca, Taylor.
Kate, Liz, and Taylor.
"Mmm, your cravat isn't quite right..." haha, notice the sword in his hand?
At 7:00, we enjoyed a big dinner.
Christina and Eli.
And the other side of the table...
Emily, Daniel, and Angela.
Emily and Daniel.
This is my sweet friend Sarah. She actually made her lovely gown for the ball.
After dinner, we all met at the dance floor for some good old-fashioned English Contra Dancing. We danced a variety of dances, but the pictures below are all of the "broom dance." The broom dance is similar to musical chairs. One gentleman is short of a partner and has to dance with the broom until the music stops and he grabs a lady. Yes, it was a real funny one to watch as some of the guys fought for a partner.

Well, that concludes the pictures of the Confederate Ball. We had a great time. God bless you!
